Enlightenment can be found in the most unexpected places, including in Western literature. According to my guest, Dean Sluyter, there's a lot we can learn from several beloved classics. We can read Hemingway as haiku, learn mindfulness from Virginia Woolf, see Dickinson and Whitman as Buddhas of poetry, and Huck Finn and Gatsby as seekers of the infinite. In this interview, we'll learn more about Dean's unique insights into mindfulness and awakening. Dean Sluyter has taught natural methods of meditation and awakening since 1970. His five highly acclaimed books include the bestsellers such as Natural Meditation. Dean gives sessions throughout the United States and beyond, from Ivy League colleges to maximum-security prisons. His media appearances have included The New York Times, The Dr. Oz Show, and The Oprah Magazine. A student of Eastern and Western sages in several traditions, Dean has completed numerous pilgrimages and retreats in India, Tibet, Nepal, and the West. During our discussion, Dean explains the wisdom we can glean from several literary giants he mentions in his new book, “The Dharma Bum's Guide to Western Literature: Finding Nirvana in the Classics,” and how we can apply them in daily life. He also offers advice on enhancing our meditation and mindfulness practice.

Not flourishing is what drove her to study positive psychology. Positive psychology - what an amazing concept, huh? It's more about figuring out how things can go right. From depression to positive psychology, my guest this week, Louisa Jewell, has been teaching people about well-being since she discovered it, and is even running organizations to empower people with this knowledge so they can be and feel better. She simply wanted to figure out how to help herself and others, and then discovered a way. I say "simply". But of course, it's more like deciding, then figuring it out. It could take weeks or months. But once you decide to figure it out, you're usually pretty clear on what to do next. She stays peaceful, happy and content along the way with exercise, meditation, and many other well-being practices. And she never stops growing. Louisa even became a better speaker by learning stand up comedy. As she likes to describe herself, she's the drop in the pond; someone who shares information and spreads ideas to help people change their lives for the better. A few other tips from this episode: Define your own success Run your own race Learn your craft, then craft your job If you are shining, you're going to help more people Finally, a great tip Louisa offers when interacting with any person, at any time, is to ask yourself: how can I love this person? How beautiful is that question, huh? More about Louisa: Jewell is the Founder and President of the Canadian Positive Psychology Association and holds a master's degree in Applied Positive Psychology (MAPP) from the University of Pennsylvania. Louisa is the host of The Awesome Project, a new Audible Originals Podcast series, appears regularly on CBC radio as a well-being expert and has been featured extensively in other media including Forbes, Fast Company and Oprah Magazine.

When you're scrolling through Instagram, what makes you stop? For some folks, it might be eye-catching colors, for others it's unique locales or engaging video. For me and for a lot of other people out there, the answer to that is simply this – Style. Visual Style. You see a creator's work on the platform, like the photo/project, enough so that you swipe over to their profile page and it All. Just. Clicks. It's like you can experience their personality, their humanity itself seeping through the screen in every image, video, or story they're posting. Whether it's a high school sports match or an in-depth documentary project, the work FEELS like it was all created consistently and has the same heart behind it.

Hey Brave Table fam, thanks for joining me for this week's episode with the absolutely incredible Dr. Mariza Snyder. Dr. Mariza is a functional practitioner, hormone expert, author (of 8 best-selling books!), wife & mama, wellness advocate, and host of the podcast, Essentially You with Dr. Mariza. She has been featured on Dr. Oz, Oprah Magazine, Fox News Health, and MindBodyGreen. After healing from her battles with chronic illness, fatigue, and basically a full-body meltdown, Dr. Mariza has dedicated her life's work to helping others—especially women—balance their hormones and empower them with holistic solutions. Tune in to hear her incredible life story (like emancipating herself as a teenager, how she battled her limiting beliefs to find success, and how she healed from her childhood traumas) plus her tips to improve your well-being and level up your health. What you'll get out of this episode… - Why your hormones go out of whack during pregnancy (and how to have some grace with your miraculous body!) - What your menstrual cycle can tell you about your health - The two keys to balancing your hormones and why balancing your hormones is one of the best things you can do for your health - The importance of nutrition, the best types of foods to eat, and the supplements you need to thrive - Why you need to slow down and rest, especially as type A, overachieving women - How to overcome your limiting beliefs and challenge your thoughts - The number one reason why so many women burn out and sacrifice their health As a little girl, Dr. Mariza's mantra was “you gotta survive”. Raised in a hectic household by a single mom, her stress response system was constantly lit up, responding to the craziness and chaos that surrounded her. At only 12 years old, Dr. Mariza had her brave AF moment when she moved in with her father and step-mother and started working towards emancipating herself from her mom (yes, at TWELVE years old!) But eventually, Dr. Mariza's hustle caught up with her in the form of fatigue, thyroid issues, Hashimoto's—basically, everything in her body was off. Doctors kept giving her solutions like birth control and Xanax (to which she said "hell no!"), and she kept falling flat on her face. So, tapping into her unstoppable drive, she did all the research herself and uncovered she could cure herself of these diseases through good hormone health. Dr. Mariza realized this whole situation was so much bigger than just her—it spoke to the entire way women are treated in the healthcare industry and why so many women end up with the same issues she did: from constantly feeling like we have to prove our worth, whether to our parents, to those we take care of, or to ourselves—coming back full circle to how life was with her mom. So, Dr. Mariza ditched the biochemistry lab to dedicate herself to what she does today: help women balance their hormones through holistic health solutions and live healthy & abundant lives.

Many of us have been faced with the difficult transition of having to let go of someone we love. It isn't easy. And letting go of your child is possibly one of the hardest things a mother ever has to face. This week, Sarah Sentilles, author of Stranger Care: A Memoir of Loving What Isn't Ours, brings us to our knees as she tells us her story of love and loss that centers around a tiny baby girl named Coco. Whether you're a parent or not, be prepared for Sarah's story to break your heart wide open and lift you into a deeper sense of connection to yourself and the others around you.

Topic: Adding heart to integrityGuest: Martha Beck At this time in our world, it seems that there is a global loss of integrity, and yet integrity is a highly valued trait. In this podcast episode, we are talking with Martha Beck, a life coach, speaker, columnist for O, The Oprah Magazine, and author of several bestselling books including the newly released title The Way of Integrity. Martha and our Add Heart® Podcast host Deborah Rozman discuss the connection between integrity, heart intuition, and aligning with our true selves. To live from integrity and align more with our true selves, we have to distinguish between our heart's intuitive guidance, our mind's reactions, and our emotional pulls. Martha and Deborah talk about how we can learn to know the difference.
We are so excited to speak with bestselling author Emily Henry (Beach Read, People We Meet on Vacation) about all things character—how to make a character intense yet likable, how to make dialogue snappy yet believable—and how to make the most of an enemies-to-lovers dynamic. We also discuss over-editing, the (false!) idea that there's a magic formula for getting published, and how Emily got her first agent the traditional "Google and cold query" way. We also discuss what makes female (versus male characters) "likable"--and when we care to cater to those expectations. We had so much fun having this discussion. Hope you love listening as much as we enjoyed talking with her. * Emily Henry is the #1 New York Times bestselling author of People We Meet on Vacation and Beach Read, as well as several young adult novels.

Welcome back, Brave Table fam, for today's episode with Selena Soo. Selena is a Public Relations boss woman whose superpower is turning authors, coaches, and experts into leaders of their industry. She's helped her clients and students get featured in places like The Oprah Magazine, Forbes, and Inc., plus land interviews on popular podcasts and national TV. Born in Hong Kong to the first Asian man accepted into Oxford University, an Ivy League Graduate, and the CEO of multi-7-figure businesses, Selena is as high-achieving as they come, with plenty of stories and successes to share. But in this conversation, Selena shares her bravest story yet; it's the story of how a bright, educated, accomplished woman found herself in an abusive relationship, why this happens, how to get out of it, and the lessons on the other side. What you'll get out of this episode… - Learning to let go of being in control and taking responsibility for everything as a high-achieving woman or CEO of a business - How to recognize emotional abuse early on: what are the warning signs and red flags to look for - Undoing the conditioning of saving face and keeping up appearances, particularly in Asian cultures - Understanding the complexity of abusive relationships and how to identify when it might be happening to you - Why it's so important to give your pain a voice and share your story - Why you should value internal growth and development over external achievements and rewards - How to rise above when things start to fall apart, despite having a picture-perfect life on the outside - How to stop people-pleasing and take your power back In 2017, Selena felt on top of the world. Her business was flourishing with no stop in sight, she was celebrating with friends, and she met the person she thought would be her Prince Charming. Initially, Selena wasn't interested, but the guy persisted: ”love bombing” her with grand gestures, flower bouquets, gift cards, you name it. He was determined to win her over. Finally, Selena gave in and let the relationship evolve into something romantic. How could she not, right? Here this man was devoting all his attention to her, making her the top priority in his life. But eventually, the dynamic started to shift. He became increasingly interested in her business and her money, even going as far as to gaslight her into believing that her team didn't have her best interests so she would let them all go. He was manipulative and emotionally abusive, and the situation eventually reached a breaking point where she found the courage to leave. However, as it so often happens in toxic relationships, they got back together after he promised to change, isolating herself even further by moving to Florida with him. Then, one day when she finally received her long-awaited Green Card—a day that should have been joyful and full of celebration but instead was full of tears and anxiety—she decided it was over, packed her bags, and left—for good. Today, Selena has been reflecting on her experience with coaches and healers, discovering how to make healthier choices, seeing where she gives her power away, and learning that life will keep giving you tests until you've learned your lessons. But most importantly, despite it all, Selena is still ready for love. Having been through my own abusive relationship, I relate so much to Selena's story and how disorienting it can feel to find ourselves in this kind of situation, despite being so savvy in other areas of our lives. She shows us the power and importance of sharing our stories—even when we look like we're leading a life of glitz and glamour but falling apart on the inside. Our stories can change people's lives and save people's lives, and we release our shame and pain when we give it a voice and realize we're not alone.

And so we reach the final part of our 'SLEEP AWARENESS MONTH' on the Sports Therapy Association Podcast, being uploaded also to this Runchatlive Podcast. My special guest is Dr Amy M Bender, Director of Clinical Sleep Science at Cerebra, talking about 'In-Home Polysomnography' and sharing the results of my recent five week sleep study using the Cerebra Sleep System. What is In-Home Polysomnography? The most comprehensive form of sleep study currently available requires going to a sleep-lab. However, for many the sleeping environment is unnatural and equipment uncomfortable. A popular alternative is the ‘Home Sleep Apnea Test' (HSAT), which though convenient only measures breathing and respiratory functions, not sleep quality. Enter the ‘Cerebra Sleep System‘ – an in-home, self applied polysomnogram (PSG) that provides the quality diagnostics of an in-lab study with the convenience of Home Sleep Apnea Testing. For those of you who like the nitty gritty, Cerebra Sleep System uses the patented algorithm Odds Ratio Product (ORP) that micro analyses the Electroencephalogram (EEG) signal providing a continuous measure of sleep depth, moving beyond conventional scoring methods to dig deeper into brain activity. The Cerebra Sleep System can measure brain waves (EEG), eye movement (EOG), respiratory data, leg and body movements, pulse oximetry, and heart rate (ECG). My Five Week Sleep Study using ‘Cerebra Sleep System' My personal five week sleep study included: Electroencephalography (EEG/brain waves). Electrooculography (EOG/eye movements). Electromyography (EMG/electrical activity of chin muscle). Daily reaction time tests to track performance. Questionnaires on perceived sleep quality, disturbances during the night. Tracking of daily exercise & use of electronics before bedtime. In this podcast episode, topics discussed included: What are the benefits but also limitations of common consumer wearables like Fitbit and Oura ring? How does the Cerebra In-Home Polysomnogram Sleep System differ from the above? How useful is the data regarding the different stages of sleep, e.g. REM, N-REM, Deep Sleep, etc.? How did Matt Phillips find sleeping with the Cerebra headset on? How useful was it being held accountable each day by filling in questionnaires? What was Matt's Sleep Study expecting to find by removing caffeine consumption after week one? A look at the results from Matt's five week Sleep Study including: - General Insights (sleep efficiency, sleep latency, reported sleep quality, and more) - Actual sleep time per night - Amount of waking up after going to sleep - Effect of removing caffeine: evening sleepiness, reaction time, attention lapses Take home messages from the study & Sleep Awareness Month Useful Links Cerebra Health Website Dr Amy Bender Website Dr Amy M Bender on Twitter: @sleep4sport About This Week's Guest Dr. Amy Bender is Director of Clinical Sleep Science at Cerebra, a digital health company in Canada focused on improving access to advanced digital sleep analysis and diagnostic sleep technology.
